New News: Not a peep since JordanCon back in April.

Related News: None really, though a new trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was released by Sony. Radar Pictures is listed as a Production Company and Both Ted field and Mike Weber have producer credits. Not sure how much involvement they actually had though. Narg asked The Rock if Ted or Mike had asked him to guest star as Narg, but didn't get an answer:(

General Wheel of Time News turned 19. Jason the Webmaster shared his thoughts on that as well as reflecting on the passing of RJ.
While the books are complete, I still adamantly maintain that the Wheel of Time franchise is alive and thriving. Not only is JordanCon getting bigger every year, but there are still millions of fans out there who love this saga, and those numbers will only continue to grow as the books are passed onto new readers. Sony’s upcoming TV show will breathe new life into the series, and with it will come a flood of new friends to our community. 
Administering DM for the past 19 years has been a remarkable experience in my life. Not only did it lead me to this wonderful community of fans, but it helped me launch my own writing career.

Wheel of Time in the Wild

The Toronto Star had a mention of Wheel of Time in their "The books Toronto commuters are reading on the subway" story.
Eden Klein, 27, works for a health charity
Book: The Gathering Storm by Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan
Stop: St. Andrew
After work Klein swaps science research for science fiction and fantasy.
She grew up among the Harry Potter generation. Once introduced to fantasy, she couldn’t stop reading. She travelled through space with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and explored Westeros in A Song of Ice and Fire.
Now she has turned her attention to The Wheel of Time series, one of the best-loved of the genre.
“It’s high fantasy which means it’s very much a pure fantasy world, (with) good people versus the bad, a lot of symbology and the dark versus the light,” she says. “There’s this one person, the Harry Potter of the world, who’s destined to save it.”
Speaking of Harry Potter, a person on twitter also compared Rand to Harry.
Narg would I thought Rand being Ron and the other Two Rivers crowd being Hermione and Harry would have been more apt in this case and less of a stretch...

Narg finds this Twitter Pixel Rand less controversial...mb to orange...

Wheel of Time makes a cameo appearance in an article by WPO Cincinnati "Why this 62-year-old grandfather is an advocate for cosplay" Free virtual Narg hug for anyone who lists all the Wheel of Time bits(need to watch the video to get them all).

The Portalist made a list of  50 of the best Fantasy characters ever! Wheel of Time only scored one character and it's probably not the one many are thinking it's not Narg!

WoT made it into the USA political debate on twitter...

Now before you head off to Twitter to troll poor's not what it looks like!!!

See, not so bad.

Wheel of Time Humor

Some human called Cannoli asked some of the Wheel of Time characters the age old question of "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

Here's a small sample:
Egwene: "Because Elaida's ineptitude drove it across the road. A true Amyrlin would not have alienated the chicken so. It makes me furious. By the way, I barely cried when it pecked me."
Narg: "Narg stay. Narg Smart. Car get chicken." 
Perrin: "NOTHING MATTERS BUT FAILE!!! Nothing. *Sob* Faile loved chicken."
 Romanda: "In my day we didn't have all this fussing over frivolous chickens. I keep my chickens in line. Plainly the Mistress of Chickens isn't doing her job." 
Yes, he should have quit after the Narg beating that, though the Loial one is ok.
